Storm Alfred-Danger warzone ahead!
The day started out okay... when the snow came it came as big puffy snowflakes!! The size of softballs. You should take notice of the limbs on the left of this tree...(they will be down shortly).
Julie's new truck was in a precarious place...those two big oak trees next door always give us 'adjeda' (spelled correctly?) during a storm. See the amount of snow on the ground? The total inches we got were probably 4-5" of heavy wet snow, but the branches on the surrounding trees were coming down already and it's not even dark.
Once the branches started cracking and falling behind Julie's new truck (she's had it a week or so), she decided to move it up close to the garage... (smile- big mistake)....
This was the bushy part of the big tree. This photo was taken from the bathroom window. (No one thinks it's quite safe to venture outside yet).
Talk about one dangerous branch to come down. This is our next door neighbor, Brian pulling on that huge branch. The left side of the branch fell right after this photo was taken, but it was 'wishboned' over another stump of a branch high up. The other half is still dangling.
Looks like a hurricane came through. OH, Wait! That was in August! LOL
This is the swerve in the road around downed wires. My trees/house is on the left of this photo (actually, the red house is the neighbors).
